Here is an encouraging update from one of our partner Last Bell in Ukraine that works with orphans & their children.

Thanks for providing play equipment for orphanage graduates’ children!

We work with about 500 orphanage graduates per year, about half of that closely. Many of them are parents. Our recent Ball Project grant purchases were used to purchase balls, sports equipment, and climbing/play equipment both indoors and outdoors at the Shelter, our crisis housing facility for young moms. We finished renovating the Shelter late last year, and since then it’s been full of children whose moms needed someplace safe to live!

These kids love playing together at the Shelter. Many of them were in terrible, unsafe living situations with no way to play. Now they play like other children using balls and the other equipment.

Ball Project is thankful to have so many amazing partners around the world working to help transform their communities & to help children play!
